Why Choose Laughing Bird Consulting?

Scott is a Leader not a Manager. What is the difference? A Manager directs, delegates and takes more of a hands-off approach, whereas a Leader motivates and inspires.

Scott is very much a hands-on Project Manager with his main focus on the end goal of delivery or implementation. He works closely with teams to build up strong relationships, keeps team members focused on their tasks and addressed problems or concerns as soon as they arise. 

He recognises that Project teams are by their nature temporary, containing individuals who may not have worked together before.  Delivering work with a leader who is a people person ensures the Project is delivered to time, cost and quality and also by a motivated and engergised Project team.

KeyedIn User Conference - 2015

A Project I recently implemented at a FTSE100 business was to change an organisations ways of working regarding Portfolio Management Planning and Processes. The main objective of the Project was to provide the Portfolio Office and Senior Management teams with greater visbility of resourcing effort, spent and forecast, across Projects and Programmes, in order to aid better decision making.

This Project was under a wider transformation Programme of which i was also working on, as the Senior Project Manager.

Do We Really Learn Our Lessons?

For Project Managers and anyone involved in delivering change to an organisation learning lessons is an important part of your job. Ensuring lessons are logged and shared helps businesses evolve by avoiding the same pitfalls and also repeating activities that went well.

I have always been extremely passionate about lessons learned and if done well, consistently and the organisation has a good process, can really help companies mature. Unfortunately all too often i have seen many projects avoid producing lessons learned and It is a sad fact that some organisations just don't value the benefit lessons learned can bring.

The Benefits of Video Tutorials

For any change to 'land' well with its target audience it must be clear what value it will bring to them as individuals, as a team and for the company. By getting the end users onside any changes you wish to make will be much easier to implement. 

During the delivery of my Projects and Programmes I have over the years carried out many change management activities, and am extremely passionate about this aspect of my job. Too often I have seen implementations of changes delivered to what may initially seem a success, due to it being delivered to time, cost and quality, only for it to then fail. This is because the end users did not know why the change was being made, what value it would bring them and even how to use the new tool or system.
